SC Governor Taking Personal Trip With Wife

South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford has cleared his schedule this week to take a personal trip with his wife, three weeks after announcing his affair with an Argentine woman.

Spokesman Joel Sawyer said Wednesday the governor would take off the rest of this week for a trip out of state with first lady Jenny Sanford. Sawyer said state meetings Sanford had scheduled this week have been postponed until next week.

The governor and first lady have said they are trying to reconcile. They have been married 20 years.

Sanford left the state June 18, returning six days later. He admitted to an extramarital affair with a woman he called his "soul mate" and said he misled his staff into thinking he was hiking on the Appalachian Trail.

    How romantic...With his "sole-mate" all the way in Argentina. His wife should not have to play second best. She is worth more than that. (along with other women or men in the same situation)

    Well he should probably never take a personal trip again by himself, considering the chance of cheating on his wife again. Maybe he needs to have his wife with him more often.

    I don't care HOW MANY TRIPS he takes her on,what he buys her or anything else he does.The fact is HE CHEATED ON HIS WIFE.He should have been doing this INSTEAD of having an affair with the other woman in Argentina.And he called this woman his SOUL MATE.PLEASE....He would be out the door as fast as I could THROW him out.If his wife DOES take him back....then she's not as smart as I thought she was.

    He has shown little remorse. He is doing this to try and save face for a future career in politics as he is probably good a nothing else
